Zadig Gestion (Luxembourg) S.A., the independent asset management company, has released a new Luxembourg-based UCITS fund called Active Risk Parity Fund. It was launched on September 4th, with advisory services provided by Zadig Asset Management LLP in London.
The new fund was launched with €16 million of internal capital. It will open on September 18th to institutional and retail investors.
It is a new sub-fund within Zadig’s successful Memnon European Fund launched under the Memnon Fund umbrella launched in 2011, which has €258 million AUM.
Zadig Gestion was advised by Laven Legal Services, the London and Luxembourg boutique law firm specialised in setting up investment funds, on the launch and structuring of the fund. The fund was approved by the CSSF on the 21st of August 2013.
The fund is a medium risk vehicle, which intends to provide medium to longer term capital growth, by following a systematic asset allocation process. It aims to generate a high single-digit return over the medium term, with low or no correlation with government bonds or equities.
Sebastien Maiilard CFA, creator of the Active Risk Parity Strategy and Head of Systematic Asset Allocation at Zadig Asset Management, said that at Zadig he had found a great platform to further the development of the Active Risk investment process.
Manager at Lavern Legal Services Kaltrine Balaj said Lavern worked closely with the CSSF and Zadig to help launch a fund at exciting times, when despite new CSSF and ESMA rules and regulations, funds using derivative instruments linked to commodity indices are proving popular in the market.
